Phoenix-based Metalworker Manipulates Steel Into Fluid Form That Challenges the Perception of Weight and Mass

PHOENIX - eTradeWire -- Phoenix metalworker and sculptor Just Idle Hands manipulates heavy metals and enamel paint into eye-popping sculpture with his latest series, Liquid Tension, Third Friday, July 19th, 6-10 PM at {9} The Gallery, 1229 Grand Avenue, Phoenix, AZ. Inspired by his years working in auto body repair, he continues to push the boundaries of steel and physics, transforming alloys into fluid and graceful forms that challenge the viewer's perception of weight and mass.

At the age of fourteen, Just Idle Hands got a job sweeping the floor of a body shop in Bisbee, Arizona so he could learn how to fix his vintage Corvette. He was introduced to punk rock, hot rods, and most importantly, learning to rely on his hands, expanding his skill set and perfecting his craft in order to bring his visions to life. He now spends his free time fabricating sculptures, furniture, jewelry, cars, toys, and motorcycles.
